    My first post was deleted for reasons unknown to me. If you're going to delete my post, please at least let me know why.

    OK so my question is,
    Has anyone tried to format the jp5 tablet?
    There is another post labeled "unlock jp5 tablet" where we learned how to gain access to the drive via pc. Everyone now is trying to jailbreak the jpay OS on the tablet.
    But my question is if I format the drive, could I then install a fresh android os?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Welcome to Android Forums @Hunter19877 :)

    My initial impression reading the title that the term formating was substituted for the term "factory reset". The fact that you mention Jsilbreak is a term mainly used for iPhones and Root is for Android. Being a prison tablet jailbreaking is a fitting description indeed.
    Being a rooted for many years, I am well versed with custom roms, custom recovers, custom kernels, flashing, modding, porting and even dabble in reverse engineering apps/apks. The few things I lnow when it comes to the Jp5's is there pretty locked down. Now that doesn't mean Im saying its impossible. All Im the chances of replacing the Jp5 with an alternative OS is in my option, slim to none. :(

    Heres an example of an XDA root bounty for the AT&T(n910a) and the Version Note 4 (n910v).

    New bounty submission or increase of current bounty

    AT&T Root Total: $5,980.00
    AT&T No Knox Trip: $7,420.00

    Verizon Root Total: $7,966.00
    Verizon No Knox Trip: $8,586.00

    Root Total: $13,946.00
    No Knox Trip Total: $16,006.00

    That was offered in 2014. None were able to cash in on that.


    I hope aomeone comes along with a brilliant merhod. There a few other members like @mikedt and @ocnbrze who are much better versed thsn I in regards to the Jp5. :)

    Thanks for the reply. There are a few people around here who have claimed they can root it. Some have claimed they can install apps and use the wifi and Bluetooth. All of which I want to do. But no one wants to help or give up the recipe. I'm at least happy I was able to get into it via pc and retrieve all of my emails and music. But I don't understand why, if I reformat it, why I couldn't be able to install a fresh android os

    Yes, I have read some of thoughs posts as well. To get a better feel of members here on AF simply tape on their picture icon. Tap on mine "Bug Bunny" (to be honest I look more like Elmer Fudd :) ).


    I've been a member of Android Forums a little over a year.

    Heres @ocnbrze and @mikedt profile

    This is just an indicator of credibility. When was the last time the member who claimed to be able to root, install apps, unlock wifi ...... ?Was that last tome they were online the same day as they posted their claims? Of course, Im not in a position to dispute the validity one way or the other. If you hang around here on AF as an active member and I hope you do, I think you'll see whos real and whos not. :)

    PS: I honestly understand how you feel.

    sorry but i'm not that familiar with jpay tablets....other then what is posted here in AF. all of my rooting knowledge comes from xda. if there is nothing posted there on how to root your tablet, then i have no idea where you can get help with it. there was a member or two as you have found that claim to be able to unlock the device without give much info. and i have no idea if that member ever gave help to others or not.

    just curious does anyone know what the cost is to unlock the device from jpay?

    Although, formating it and installation of an alternative OS may sound simple, I assure you it is not. There are security checks to consider like DM-Verification (device Maper verification and DRK (device root key).


    The best advice I can give you is to purchase another table that your able to root and has an active developer community for support. I know it's not the answer you want but consider all the time and effort involved. Like I said Im not saying it can't be done but the odds are stacked against you on a Jp5. :(

    Thank you for all of your replys. I figure if I format the drive then I'm probably Going to be stuck with a blank tablet. So I'm just going to stick with what I have

    I've been chatting with a guy who is helping me be able to install apps. If this ends up working I will post about it. It has to do with the update folder on the tablet drive. Tiger- md5 files. Putting them in the folder and it auto installs them. So I'm getting somewhere.

    But thanks again everyone. MrJavi I know what you mean. I've read that there is no just regular android os. They're specifically made and designed for a specific device. So I know I'm Beat there....
    Ocnbrze I've never been on XDA I don't even know what it is. Is it worth going there making an account? Is it a forum??

    Thanks again

    The jp5 tablets are a different world. Unless you've been in prison you dont know anything about them lol.

    Yes they can be rooted and formatted or reset and even install google services and the play store. Yes it's been done since spring. Many people charge but I give those hacks for free

    If you want the hacks and apps for the jp5 for free. Send me a message

    Been to prison, multiple times. I've kinda been trying to push that across to people here that really If you haven't been to prison and had a tablet you really have no clue about jpay and the Jplayers. I truly hate the way jpay works.

    But some people here do know some things and do try to help. a lot are misinformed tho because they have ZERO experience with these things and jpay. They go read what it says on the jpay official site and believe it.... But like I said people are very helpful here and they do try to help figure things out. There is this one guy tho who keeps telling people that it's impossible lol...

    Thanks man I'm gonna email you now

    The more help we can give the better. Some people do know what they are talking about but charge money for the info. Not everyone is able to obtain the answers because of it. So let us open the doors hehhehe

    Yeah this one guy on the unlock jp5 tablet thread was talking about charging for the info but he was bullshitting. I appreciate the help.
    I'm not exactly in need of using the tablet I mean I do have my galaxy. I have 2 laptops and a computer and also I am in the process of building a computer. But I'm scared to send my teblet out to jpay. As it's been 2 years since I've been free so they'll most likely keep it or whatever. I just want to get it app ready and good to go. I actually probably will use it. But my plan is to one day give it to one of my friends kids. I feel like they would love it. Lol I would've when I was young. It looks cool. It's clear. And if it does everything a regular tablet can do then that's an introduction to future devices.

    My jp5mini was last synced to a kiosk in December 2016 when I was released.
    I got all of the hacks. Having a problem rooting for some reason with jellybean. Tried to reinstall using kingoroot to u install. No luck. Supersu says it isn't rooted. But I have Facebook installed, Google play services and the play store. It all kinda runs slow. I'm thinking about doing a factory reset and starting over oh I can put music on it too. I just don't like how slow all of the apps are.

    Its official, the rumors are true. The jp6 has been hacked. 2 weeks ago.
    Is simple but if you dont do the hacking correctly, jpy will know that it's been modified and alert the camp. So if you hack it you better know how to hide your apps and clean your work.

    Send me a message I'll send you the jp5 and jp6 hacks
